Citizen's Oversight Committee

  • School Proposition 39 Proposition 39 requires school districts that pass Proposition 39 bonds to seat a Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) to assure the community that bond funds are expended in the fashion outlined in the district’s bond resolution. The CBOC must meet at least once a year and inform the public about the expenditure of bond revenues. The CBOC shall actively review and report on the proper expenditure of taxpayers’ money for school construction.

    COC Tel: (951) 509-6110

    In November 2007, Alvord Unified School District successfully passed Measure H Bond for $196 million. The Citizen’s Oversight Committee (COC) has been formed in compliance with the Education Code and Proposition 39. The committee members are generally appointed by the School Board and volunteer their knowledge and time as a service to the community. The COC is comprised of nine (9) members of the community that include members of the following capacities:


    • One member who is a business owner in the community and in a business organization representing the business community located within the District
    • One member who is active in a senior citizen’s organization
    • One member who is a parent or guardian of a student enrolled in the District
    • One member who is active in a parent-teacher organization (PTA)
    • One member who is active in a bona fide taxpayer’s organization
    • Four general members



    The purpose of the Citizen’s Oversight Committee (COC) is to ensure accountability in the spending of Measure H funds as approved by the citizens of the community and to inform the public annually by issuing a written report concerning the expenditure of bond proceeds. The COC acts in an advisory capacity. It does not directly approve projects, funding or direct District staff.
